“I have been in trend my complete profession, and it makes me really feel good once I stroll within the room and I do not really feel as if I look 60 in a room of 25- to 30-year-olds,” Dennis mentioned within the information launch. “I at all times carried weight in my neck and chin, and my droopy eyelids made me look extra drained than I really was.”
